Co Op - for green shield stamps - and maybe Budgen. Big supermarkets weren't a thing - high streets still had butcher, baker, greengrocer so supermarkets were for cans, cleaning products, tea/coffee, toilet roll, frozen peas.

Morrisons.

I still remember having to help my dad fit the shopping bags in the back of our ancient Ford Focus. Memories...

Asda, Morrisons, Sainsburys, Lidl, Tesco and Waitrose. Just a mix of them all.

Co-op/ Asda as they were the closest. Aldi now that they're about.

I still shop at Aldi or Tesco.

My mum would really shop just about everywhere- and still does! But we live really close to a Morrisons (like a 15-20 minute walk so it’s super fast by car) so we’d mostly shop there.

She goes to Asda a lot on her way home from work tho

It really varied.

Marks & Spencers
Netto
Tesco

Those were probably her main faves, although she did nip into Asda or Sainsburys on occasion.
